That is TANTALIZING to say the least! Would those same masters also contain the soundtrack rerecordings?

Best Buy and CD Universe are listing a "new" limited release of Jaws available 9/24. Does anyone know anything about this?

Here are the deets:

Label Universal Japan

"Jaws [Limited] [9/24]: Release Notes: Muze
Composed by John Williams. The 25th Anniversary edition contains the original music cues from "Jaws" and various previously unreleased tracks. Original score composed by John Williams. Includes liner notes by John Williams & Steven Spielberg. All tracks have been digitally remastered. John Williams' first film score to capture the imagination of the public, and the first hit movie score of the 1970s not to involve a love theme (a la Love Story), Jaws has been on CD for more than a decade, but this is the first release that really does it justice. The centerpiece of the music is the bump-bump-bump-bump theme associated with the movements (usually unseen) of the shark, which became so well known that it was used as an essential part of various comedy sketches in a multitude of media at the time (Williams himself quoted it comically in his scoring for Steven Spielberg's 1941). It does reappear in numerous forms (many of them veiled) throughout the score, along with a handful of additional memorable musical phrases associated with Williams' score, many involving the hunt for the shark. The anniversary edition of the score not only features the familiar portions of the original album, which didn't amount to 40 minutes of music, but 15 minutes or more of Williams' score from the actual film, and also music that was written and recorded for the movie but dropped from it. Little is totally unfamiliar, but the 24-bit remastering off of the original tapes adds fresh luster to the recording and the music. It's doubly interesting, hearing the music uncut and remastered, to realize anew just how many of the effects that turn up at key points in this score Williams reused in his music for Close Encounters of the Third Kind and other scores of his. This was not only where Williams' career as a superstar soundtrack composer began but also where he first started using the musical attributes that would identify that phase of his career. ~ Bruce Eder"

Looks like a re-release of the Decca.

Wow. Decca reissue or new issue, I hope that in no way derails a real edition from Intrada.

Yep, looks like it's just a Japanese budget re-issue of the previously available Decca CD. Nothing to see here (apparently!)

Very unlikely, re-releases of this sort tend to be practically simply an excuse to advertise it again.

Intrada also posted about the original tapes of Delerue's Something Wicked, so hopefully they are working on that as well.

was it slated for release this year or just whenever? I hope the tapes sound better than Herrmann's ITS ALIVE.

They've not said. But a few months ago me and another user there were talking about the score and I brought up that it's likely not going to happen since the rights are probably tied up with that overseas label that paired some of the score.

Roger chimed in with a posted that was obviously a nudge to read between the lines, that it's going to happen.

Justin, that's what I was referring to - I couldnt find the post, and forgot if Roger said it might happen by years end or what.

In some thread, Roger wrote "patience" with regard to SWTWC. Also with an interview with Underscores:

http://www.underscores.fr/index.php/2012/07/interviews-intrada-to-disney-and-beyond/

"Can we expect a definite release of Georges Delerue’s rejected score from Something Wicked This Way Comes?
I would love to do it! I’ll just leave it at that!"

It's supposed to sound like Horner's replacement score because both scores were recorded in the same place with the same technology.

wow, that sounds very promising! Now if we could only mix it into the film. wink Thanks also for that interview link. At the end, Roger said there wasnt much left to release from John Williams. I dunno about that...

Well the original film that Jack Clayton directed went through a number of changes and that is one of the reasons the score was replaced.

Roger stated in October, 2011, this:

Interesting factoid: the rejected score was
recorded in the same format as the Horner score: 3M 32-track digital.

So, when we do get it, it will sound as beautiful and clear as the horner release.
